A list of characters appearing in ''WesternAnimation/{{Rio}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Rio 2}}''.



!!Blu the Blue Macaw (Full name: Tyler Blu Gunderson)
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JesseEisenberg

* AcrophobicBird: A literal example. He gets over it by the end of the first movie, though.
* {{Adorkable}}
* BadassAdorable[=/=]BadassBookworm: Awkward, geeky and sheltered as he might be, he can become a badass in a heartbeat when his loved ones are threatened.
* BreakTheCutie: Goes through a lot over the course of both movies.
* BelligerentSexualTension: With Jewel in the first film.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Even Blu has his limits.
* ChainedHeat: Same as above.
* CharacterDevelopment: A little more confident and outgoing in the sequel, especially when around his family.
* ChekhovsSkill: Most of the skills he he learned while growing up in Minnesota proved to be quite useful.
* TheChick: Right up until he TookALevelInBadass near the end.
* ClassicalAntiHero: Initially.
* CowardlyLion: Was this at first.
* DeadpanSnarker: Sometimes.
* DieOrFly: Quite literally in the climax. It's the only way to save Jewel and himself.
* FishOutOfWater: Somewhat, he hails from Rio but was kidnapped at a young age and brought to the U.S. So it is pretty awkward for him when he returns to his homeland after so long.
* [[GoodParents Good Father]]
* {{Hikikomori}}: Due to his timid nature and that it's freezing in Minnesota.
* InstantExpert: [[ZigZaggedTrope Zig-zagged]]. In the second film, he fails to use his beak to break free of some vines the first time around, but manages to pull it off the second time (and even cuts some rope that had trapped Linda and Tulio inbetween).
* LastOfHisKind: Turns out he's not.
* LoveAtFirstSight: Subverted. He is briefly attracted to Jewel when they first meet until she attacks him when he starts to make his move. Afterwards it pretty much turns into disliking. His romantic feelings for her do return after their dance, though.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Feminine Boy to Jewel's Masculine Girl.
* MeaningfulName: Blu is...well, blue.
* MissingMom: We never see her or any of his other family in either movie.
* NiceGuy: He was [[MinnesotaNice raised in Minnesota]] after all.
* OfficialCouple: With Jewel.
* PapaWolf: In the ''Rio: Snakes Alive!'' graphic novel, he twice leaps to defend his family from the giant snake Ssssalbatore.
* PlatonicLifePartners: An interspecies example. With Linda (a female human).
* RedOniBlueOni: The Blue to Jewel's Red.
* SpidersAreScary: In the original film, Blu is freaked out by the thought of a spider on his back. In the sequel, he gets scared by them twice.
* SpoiledSweet: Linda has raised him a bit too protectively (sunblock against beak burns??), but Blu is rather well-trained with other humans and friendly with other animals (provided they don't treat him badly).
* TookALevelInBadass: At the climax of the film. Though he does show signs of this during the brawl with monkeys.
* [[WellDoneSonGuy Well Done Son-In-Law Guy]]: Seemingly becomes this to Eduardo during the second movie.

!!Jewel the Blue Macaw
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AnneHathaway

* ActionGirl
* [[AntiHero Anti-Heroine]]: Type II with some hints of Type III. She, like Blu, [[CharacterDevelopment grows out of this]] by the end of the first movie.
* BadassInDistress: [[spoiler: Both when Nigel captures her and hurts her wing. Rather legitimate reason for the latter though, considering it was damaged quite badly at the end]].
* BelligerentSexualTension: With Blu in the first film.
* BreakTheCutie: Like her mate, Jewel has her own share of tragic events in her life. See DarkAndTroubledPast.
* BrokenBird: Because of her DarkAndTroubledPast, she became aggressive, cynical, and overall, a little rough around the edges. Becomes a literal example after her wing gets badly injured.
* ChainedHeat: With Blu in the first film.
* CharacterDevelopment: She becomes more trusting and patient through her adventure with Blu, and learns to accept the differences they have. She is also [[TookALevelInKindness much kinder and caring]] by the beginning of the sequel.
* TheChiefsDaughter: Her father is the leader of a flock of blue macaws.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindows: Her blue feathers and blue eyes.
* DaddysGirl: Is shown to be this in the sequel.

* DeadpanSnarker
* {{Deuteragonist}}: Of the "Rio" franchise.
* GaussianGirl: In one scene, right before showing her [[HotBlooded actual personality.]]
* [[GoodParents Good Mother]]
* HatesEveryoneEqually: She hates humans, does not get along with Blu (at first), is pretty much aloof toward the others (Nico, Pedro, Rafael), and does not like dogs (at least when they're drooling). She gets better though.
* TheHero: Right up until she injured her wing.
* IJustWantToBeFree
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She can come as rather aggressive, rude, even a bit selfish, but she also has a sweet heart to her and does everything she can to help Blu when it counts. The heart of gold becomes more apparent as the movie progresses, with [[TookALevelInKindness the jerk part mostly gone]] by the beginning of the sequel.
* [[LastOfHisKind Last Of Her Kind]]- Turns out not to be this.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Masculine Girl to Blu's Feminine Boy.
* MissingMom: According to the Rio 2 novel, Jewel's mother died during said fire above.
* OfficialCouple: With Blu.
* PluckyGirl
* RedBaron: Called the "Gem of the Forest".
* RedOniBlueOni: The Red to Blu's Blue.
* {{Tsundere}}: Type A in the first movie; tsuntsun most of the time but giving occasional hints of deredere towards Blu from time to time, eventually becoming fully deredere towards him after the dance. She evolves into a Type B in the sequel, where she is sweet most of the time, but will bring out her tougher side if she feels it's necessary.
* [[ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend Violently Protective Mate]]: Jewel does not take kindly to threats against Blu.

!!Rafael the Toco Toucan
->'''Voiced by:''' George Lopez

* BrownEyes
* TheCharmer
* DeadpanSnarker: Shades of this.
* HappilyMarried: Despite being a literal HenpeckedHusband, he's very content in his marriage.

* TheLancer
* LifeOfTheParty: When he was younger.
* TheMentor: He served as this when trying to teach Blu how to fly.
* NiceGuy: A lover of romance and friendship. Always willing leading to hand for his friends. He even admitted that he would give up the chance to go to Carnival (the place he was called "The King"), because he rather be with his wife and kids.

* ShipperOnDeck: For Blu and Jewel.

!!Pedro the Red-Crested Cardinal

!!Nigel the Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo
->'''Voiced by:''' Jemaine Clement

* AxCrazy
* {{Badass}}: Manages to take out a security guard of the animal hospital.
* CardCarryingVillain: He relishes the fact he's sadistic, evil and monstrous. And he's one of the few characters that can manage both this and being [[NightmareFuel absolutely terrifying]].
* CarnivoresAreMean: Justified, however, in that he uses his taste in bird meat to torment the birds his owner has captured.
* CatchPhrase: ''PRETTY BIRD.''
* CoincidentalAccidentalDisguise: His attempt to attack a blue macaw he thought was Blu ends up giving him a leaf mask and cape, leading Rafael, Nico and Pedro to think he's auditioning for their talent show.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Has shades of this. Smart enough to realize that his captives might escape and [[spoiler:decides to dump the marmosets after their first failure.]] Shows more during the final part of the film where he [[spoiler:successfully captures all the heroes singlehandedly and is smart enough to realize how Blu and Jewel escaped the first time, using a real lock the second time to make sure it didn't happen again.]] Really his only mistakes were either his owners' fault or things he couldn't have seen coming. [[FridgeBrilliance Might be justified by the fact he used to be a show bird himself]].
* DisproportionateRetribution: A pretty parakeet stole his thunder while he was in show business and he blames his current mistreatment of other birds solely on this.
* TheDragon: Subverted that he's actually more competent and menacing than his master, making him a DragonInChief.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Forcing a tiny bird to pick bird meat out of his beak, just so he can try to snap the poor thing's leg off.
* EvilBrit: Actually an evil New Zealander.
* EvilIsHammy: Even more so in the sequel, where he paraphrases [[Creator/WilliamShakespeare Shakespeare]].
* EvilLaugh
* [[spoiler:FamilyUnfriendlyDeath]]: [[spoiler:Subverted. He flies into a plane propeller and is implied to have been KilledOffForReal, but he turns out to be NotQuiteDead at the end.]]
* FateWorseThanDeath: His motivation for vengeance in Rio 2, with his supposed death actually [[spoiler:clipping his wings & leaving him flightless. He gets it again at the end of the film when he's dragged off by Gabi after she finds out she's not poisonous. Meaning she can touch him without worry much to his horror.]]
* FauxAffablyEvil: He's rather polite and calm in his speech... even when choking someone or [[spoiler:dropping someone from several hundred feet to "convince" them to be his {{Mook}}.]]
* FeatheredFiend
* ForTheEvulz: He takes perverse pleasure in torturing and abusing the living crap out of other birds, to the point that he becomes obsessed with making sure Jewel and Blu ''don't'' escape his clutches.
* FreudianExcuse: Explains it in song:
-->'''Nigel:''' [[VillainSong "I had it all; a tv show, women too. I was tall, over one foot two. Then they got a pretty parakeet to fill my shoes! That's why I'm evil, why I do what I do!"]]
* GoingNative: After being accepted into the talent show, he walks right past Blu without even noticing him, yelling out that he needs glitter.
* GigglingVillain
* GreenEyedMonster: He became this after his former life as a [=TV=] star, when he got replaced by a prettier bird. Now he wants to take out his bitterness on all the pretty birds in the world.
* IgnoredEpiphany: In the graphic novel ''Rio: Snakes Alive'':
-->'''Nigel''': "I must ask, was all that evil worthwhile? Perhaps, when once again adored by millions, I'll look upon those less fortunate with kindness. Or, maybe... not! Ha-ha-ha!"
* ImAHumanitarian: In one scene, he is seen eating a chicken drumstick. While this is actually common in RealLife Cockatoos, he uses it to terrorize other birds for sadistic pleasure.
* IAmSong: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Scp3RXtdrI Pretty Bird]]". Also serves as his VillainSong.
* IWasQuiteALooker: Says this before he begins his VillainSong. Judging from the poster, he wasn't lying.
* JerkAss: And given his actions and personality, this is probably putting it lightly.
* [[spoiler:KarmicRape: [[GRatedSex Dragged off by Gabi]] at the end of Rio 2.]]
* LargeHam: Justified, as he used to be a superstar with his own television show and appeared in movies.
* LaughablyEvil: By the sequel he's not the major villain, but the major baddie used for laughs.
* MadeOfIron: Survives flying face first into a power transformer (which causes ''nearly all of Rio'' to lose electricity) with only some burnt feathers. [[spoiler:At the end of the movie, he survives being hit by a plane propeller, but lost most of his feathers.]]
* [[ManInWhite Bird in White Feathers]]: Considering he's a cockatoo, it's not like he has a choice...
* NeverMyFault: Blames his predicament in the second movie entirely on Blu, despite the fact he was antagonizing them in the first place and never seeming to realize his downfall was his own doing.
* NotQuiteDead: [[spoiler:At the end of the film, he flies into an air plane propeller and lives, though with most of his feathers gone]].
* ObfuscatingDisability
* OhCrap: He gets a good one [[spoiler:before getting hit by the plane's propeller in the climax]]. Also gets one earlier when he flies into an electrical transformer.
* PokeThePoodle: "I poop on people and I blame it on sea gulls! (it was ''him!'')"
* {{Revenge}}: His goal in the sequel is to kill Blu for [[spoiler:costing him his ability to fly.]]
* SmugSnake
* SurroundedByIdiots: His attitude after learning that the marmosets failed to capture Blu and Jewel.
* VileVillainSaccharineShow
* VillainSong: See the IAmSong example above.
** In the sequel, [[WaxingLyrical a dramatic reading of "I Will Survive"]].

-> Voiced by: Kristin Chenoweth

* AbhorrentAdmirer: To Nigel.
* AbusiveParents: [[spoiler: When she learns she's not actually poisonous, she mentions that her parents always told her she was. Carla then quips "You just have really mean parents."]] It's not confirmed, though.
* AffablyEvil: She's adorable and perky...and also [[AxCrazy stark]] [[LoveMakesYouCrazy raving]] [[{{Yandere}} bonkers]]

* PintSizedPowerhouse: She's got surprising strength for a frog that could fit in your shoe[[spoiler:, at least enough to drag a struggling cockatoo five times her size]].
* PoisonousPerson: She's a poisonous frog... [[spoiler: or so it seemed. It's just that people mistake her for a truly poisonous frog, and her parents raised Gabi making her believe the fact.]]
* VillainSong: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=894idIlso5M "Poisonous Love"]], which is also a VillainLoveSong...to another villain!
* {{Yandere}}: To Nigel. "There isn't a bird that I wouldn't '''''KILL''''' for you!"

->Voiced by: N/A

* MeaningfulName: The bowler hat, lack of voice and pantomime makes him "CharlieChaplin as an anteater".
* NiceHat: Wears a "bowler" hat.
* OverlyLongTongue: Which is used to not only capture things, but as a climbing rope, a sling elastic...
* PunchClockVillain: He's only an adversary because since Nigel released him, Charlie opted to come along with him.
* [[spoiler: ScrewThisImOuttaHere]]: [[spoiler: When Gabi learns she's not really poisonous, she pounces on Nigel, smothering him with affection. Nigel calls Charlie for help, but Charlie just dances offscreen.]]
* TheVoiceless


!!Luís the Bulldog
->'''Voiced by:''' Tracy Morgan

* AnimalStereotypes: Luíz is often seen drooling, which was used to free Blu and Jewel from their bounds. However, he states its a medical condition in his case.
* BullyBulldog: Subverted in that he's actually friendly to Blu and the gang.
* DemotedToExtra: In part two, he only shows up at the beginning and end of the movie. Having spent the majority of it trying to catch up to the birds when they leave him behind for the Amazon.
* DogsAreDumb

* AscendedExtra: Has a main role in the video game adaptation and more of a presence in the sequel.
* HappilyMarried: Even with her harshness and having the ability to scare her kids and husband, Eva does have a happy union with Rafael.
* HollywoodToneDeaf: And ''how!''
-->'''Rafael:''' Like a river of the sweetest honey!
-->'''Jewel:''' Wow, I guess [[LampshadeHanging love is deaf]], too!

* GreenEyes: The only chick of Blu and Jewel's chicks to inherit their mother's eyes.
* TheKlutz: Carla inherited her father's clumsiness.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: A fluffier version of her mother.

* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Hinted to be this towards his sisters.
* HotBlooded: [[WordOfGod "If something needs to be blown up or destroyed, he is the one to go to".]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He sometimes goes a little too overboard with his pranks (tying up his babysitter to ''FIREWORKS''), is extremely mischievous, and has rather bad manners, but he is a sweet kid deep down and does love his family.
* {{Keet}}: Boy, is he full of energy.
* MommasBoy: Like his oldest sister Carla, Tiago is closer to Jewel than he is to Blu.
* ShoutOut: His name may be a nod to wise-cracking parrot Iago, from Disney's ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}''.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Tiago should have been named "Blu II".

->Voiced by: Andy Garcia

* DefrostingIceKing: Towards Blu.
* DotingGrandparent: Eduardo enthusiastically embraces being the grandfather to Jewel and Blu's chicks and wanted them to call him "pop-pop".
* DrillSergeantNasty: While trying to teach Blu how to live in the wild. He even has a "buzz-cut" to make the military analogy clearer!
* GreenEyes: What Jewel inherited from him.
* HumansAreBastards: Doubles as a FreudianExcuse. He believes all humans are like this as loggers burned down his initial home and separated him from Jewel. As such he does all he can to keep his tribe separated from humanity and won't allow any human items (like bottle caps and fanny packs) to enter his domain. [[spoiler: He's ultimately proven wrong when Linda and Tulio save him from loggers after he's knocked out of the air. By the end of the movie he's seen wearing a fanny pack as well.]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's tough and short-tempered, especially toward Blu, but he does deeply love and care about his family and tribe.
* ObnoxiousInLaws: As much as he loves his daughter and grandchildren, son-in-law Blu is abused in many ways.
* OverprotectiveDad: Judging from how he reacts to Blu, he's this for Jewel.
-->'''Eduardo''': (''to his grandkids'') You will call me pop-pop!
-->'''Blu''': Kids, go easy on old pop-pop!
-->'''Eduardo''': (''to Blu and speaking in a [[MoodWhiplash very serious tone]]'') ''You'' can call me sir.

->Voiced by: Rita Moreno

* [[BigLittleBrother Big Little Sister]]: She's shorter than Eduardo, but is the older sibling.
* ObnoxiousInLaws: Averted. She actually adores her nephew-in-law, despite his flaws and is even the only one who accepts him into the clan with open arms.

->Voiced by: Bruno Mars

* [[spoiler:AbusiveParents]]: Well, [[spoiler:Abusive Pet Owners]]. The reason [[spoiler:he's so afraid of humans is because he was apparently captured by humans, sold as a pet and treated ''way'' worse than Blu]].
* TheCharmer: He's very suave.
* ChickMagnet: Pun not intended. Roberto manages to make a some females faint just by looking at them.
* {{Foil}}: He's basically everything that Blu isn't.
* GetAholdOfYourselfMan: [[spoiler: Blu has to slap him when he starts freaking out at seeing human loggers. Likewise Mimi once the final battle gets going so he can join in the fight.]]
* HeroicBSOD: For most of the film he's portrayed as [[TheAce Ace]] and the go-to guy for Eduardo [[spoiler: However when human loggers near their home, he panics and is entirely useless.]]
* HiddenDepths: He's apparently set up to have a secret that will throw off his status as a {{Foil}} to Blu. [[spoiler: Turns out he's afraid of humans. From what little dialogue he tells Blu, it seems he was originally a pet as well. Just treated far worse.]]
* NewOldFlame: Judging from the trailers, he's this for Jewel. [[spoiler: He's actually more of an old friend, but his status does make Blu more than a little intimidated.]]
* NiceGuy: Though he ''is'' kind of a [[TheCastShowoff show off]].
* NonMammalianHair: While his "hair" is pretty obviously made up of a bunch of feathers, it's maintained in a way that would be nigh impossible for a real-life blue macaw, no matter how great its groomer is.
* PrettyBoy: By bird standards, anyway. Being voiced by Music/BrunoMars probably helps.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: [[spoiler: Just before Blu pulls him out of the way of a bulldozer.]]
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: [[spoiler:He's terrified of humans]].

->'''Voiced by:''' Phillip Lawrence

* EnemyMine: He and the rest of the scarlet macaw tribe show up to help the blue macaws fend off the loggers.
* IShallTauntYou
* RhymesOnADime: "Today, in the pit of doom, at high noon. Oh, I'll make some room. Sweep you up like a broom!"
* TheRival: To Eduardo (And in "air soccer", Roberto).
* UnsportsmanlikeGloating: Really rubs [[spoiler:Blu accidentally scoring the winning goal in the blue macaws' net]] in Eduardo's face.

!! Tiny

* AscendedExtra: Somewhat, she gets a name in the sequel but her role pretty much amounts to a small joke.
* BadlyBatteredBabysitter: Luis sticks her with the job of watching Blu and Jewel's kids. The next we see of her they've tied her to a bottle rocket and are about to light it.
* ButtMonkey: Getting interrogated by Nigel in the first movie and nearly strapped to a bottle rocket in the second.
* ScrewThisImOutOfHere: In the first movie, when the fight with the Marmosets starts, she quickly proclaims she doesn't know what's going on and ducks into a hiding spot as the birds and monkeys begin to rumble.



!!Linda Gunderson
->'''Voiced by:''' Leslie Mann

* ActionGirl: Not so much in the beginning, but in the end, she [[spoiler:hijacks a Carnival float and ''drives it at a plane''.]]
** Ups it in the sequel [[spoiler: She commanders a bulldozer and prevents a logger from nearly crushing Eduardo. Girl loves her birds!]]
* BadassBookworm
* BikerBabe: Revealed to be one when she and Tulio go to find Blu and Jewel. Though more due to the fact that bikes and snow mobiles are pretty much the same thing to her.
* CuteBookworm
* DeadpanSnarker: Sometimes.
* GaussianGirl: Mirroring the scene with Jewel.
* HappilyMarried: To Tulio in the sequel.
* [[ABoyAndHisX A Girl And Her Bird]]: Her pet bird, Blu, is her best friend.

* PardonMyKlingon
-->"Squawk squawkity squawk squawk! [beat] I'm sorry, I didn't mean to curse!"

* [[ShesAllGrownUp Hes All Grown Up]]: In the sequel.
* NiceGuy: He's actually a sweet kid despite working for the smugglers.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: The only reason he worked with the villains. Otherwise, he is a kind-hearted kid who gets his [[HeelFaceTurn redemption]] in the end.
* StreetUrchin

->'''Voiced by:''' Carlos Ponce

* BigBad: On the human side of the story in the first movie.
* DeadpanSnarker
* EvilPoacher: But a more realistic one. He's not a sadist who gets a kick out of hurting animals. He's just a greedy and uncaring human.
* OnlySaneMan
* SurroundedByIdiots: So much so that he trusts ''Nigel'' more then he does his own men.

!!Marcel's Assistants, Tipa and Armando

* [[RealMenWearPink Real Men Wear Chicken Suits]]
* ThoseTwoBadGuys

!!Big Boss
->'''Voiced by:''' Miguel Ferrer

* FlatCharacter: He's barely on screen and makes his motives pretty clear right from the outset. But otherwise he's not really all that interesting.
* JustDesserts / EatenAlive: [[spoiler: He ultimately gets eaten by a python.]]
* LackOfEmpathy: Doesn't care about endangered macaws or anyone trying to help them. Only that they're in the way of his logging operation and he wants them ''gone'' by any means necessary.

* NoNameGiven: Never given a name onscreen, and is credited as "Big Boss".
